Saturday

Big day Saturday, racing around the world. Matt Coleman and I have downloaded form from around the world. If you had to throw the dice and pick a place, you’d struggle. Somehow, we are going to Laurel Park. Yes, Laurel Park. We’ll watch simulcasts from around the world. Meydan for the Dubai World Cup. Doncaster for the opening of the British turf season. Gulfstream Park, some card, for the Florida Derby and a table full of stakes. Fair Grounds for the Louisiana Derby and other big stakes. Carolina Cup for the Carolina Cup.

Riverdee runs Apse in the starter at Camden. Five-year-old son of Arch makes his 2014 debut. We opted for the starter handicap, rather than the Carolina Cup. Nothing easy about the starter, taking on All Together, tough horse, veteran, experience edge. Apse needs a place to start, this should provide. With 12 horses in training, it’s fun to get started. Enough jogging, enough planning, enough paying bills, let’s run.
